Mavis' Kitchen cooks up crafts
POPULAR retreat and restaurant Mavis' Kitchen has added an artisans' outlet to its business.
Mavis' Store aims to bring food and art together and provide local crafts people with a store where they'll be able to offer an eclectic and ever-changing selection of art and craft works.
"We have brought in some of the Tweed's best creative talents to fashion fine porcelain, timber home wares, silk, merino and handcrafted felt clothing and accessories, hand-bound printed books and journals, one-off handmade glass beads and much more," said Mavis' Store operator Christine Burgess.
"For food lovers, there will be an array of organic preserves created by Mavis' famous chefs as well as fresh produce from the restaurant's bio-dynamic garden.
"The art works will constantly evolve while the gourmet foodlines will reflect what is in season to ensure we incorporate the very best that the Caldera has to offer."
The store and restaurant are located at the foot of Mt Warning where the restaurant's chefs serve simple, home-cooked and unpretentious food made with fresh organic produce.
Mavis' Store will open its doors on September 1 and will be open every Saturday and Sunday from 11.00am until 5.00pm.
